ActoSenso Nodes

Introduction

In the previous article I described the system overview of my automation platform, which I call ActoSenso Platform. In this article I discuss some of the nodes that can be (and I have) used in ActoSenso Platform. Any suggestion, tip for improvement, constructive criticism or related comment is mostly welcome in the comments area.

What is an ActoSenso Node?

ActoSenso Nodes are small hardware devices that are the "eyes", "ears" and "hands" of the ActoSenso Platform. They are the interface between the real physical world and the computer that ultimately does the home automation.
Example node (PCB): Temperature and Hall sensors:
It manages 5 Hall sensors and at least 4 DS1820 family temperature sensors.
